General Plant Care:    Care for your shrubs includes monitoring for pests and diseases, periodically checking soil moisture, and providing fertilizer as needed. In general, plants that have sufficient water and the correct amount of fertilizer tend to not have as many pest and disease problems. Water new plants weekly during the growing season in the first year, and as needed after that.
General Planting Tips:    Choose a site suited to your plant's light, soil, and space needs. Dig a hole twice as wide but no deeper than the container. Remove plant from container and loosen roots slightly. Place the plant in the hole. If using slow-release (coated) fertilizer, you may add it according to package directions at this time. Add soil back to the hole, ensuring the top of the soil from the container is even with the surrounding soil. Water well, and add more soil if needed. Add 2-3 inches of mulch around plant, taking care to keep away from stem or trunk. See our FAQ page for more details on Mulching.
General Fertilizing Tips:    Apply acidic fertilizer according to package directions in spring after flowering. If needed, fertilize again in midsummer. Camellias properly planted in rich organic soil generally will not need a second application of fertilizer.
General Pruning suggestions:    Pruning can help keep a more manageable or attractive size or shape, or encourage new blooms or vigorous new growth. To avoid unnecessary pruning chores, pick the right size plant for your available space -- for example, don’t plant a shrub that gets twelve feet tall in front of a low window. Unless they being used in a formal garden setting, plants look best when not sheared tightly into a square or round ball shape. If pruning a hedge, keep the top narrower than the base to form a slight angle, allowing sun to reach the bottom branches to avoid die-back at the base of the plant. Instead, preserve the natural growth habit of the shrub by pruning selected branches back to a fork, to the trunk, or to the ground, depending on the amount you wish to cut the shrub back. Do not remove more than 1/4 of the total plant at any one time.
